There’s less than a month remaining in the regular season, which means that the Red Sox and Yankees are likely more concerned about stringing together wins than they are about last month’s fireworks at Fenway Park. If not, Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino is ready to engage.
“If it starts up, I’m going to look for [Yankees president] Randy Levine,” Lucchino joked on WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan on Thursday.
While Lucchino was able to look back and joke about the Aug. 18 incident in which Ryan Dempster drilled Alex Rodriguez, resulting in a five-game suspension for the Red Sox pitcher, he also noted that feuds can sometimes carry over. Lucchino hopes that isn’t the case in this instance, though.
“They’ve had some comments about the incident,” Luchhino said. “Baseball sort of has a way of allowing these things to perpetuate themselves. I hope [another incident] doesn’t happen. It’s a little different now, because each of these games matters so much. I don’t think anybody wants

Ryan Dempster stepped off the mound in the 6th inning holding a one-run lead over the Tigers.
His night was over, but his teammates wanted to ensure the right-hander earned his second-straight win, and his eighth on the season when they exploded for eight runs in the bottom of the sixth. The bats came alive — and then some — for Boston on Wednesday night, and Dempster had fun...
While all of the players implicated in the Biogenesis Performance-Enhancing Drug (PED) scandal other than Alex Rodriguez have accepted their penalties and are currently sitting out the pennant run, the New York Yankees 3B/DH deemed his 211 game suspension excessive and seemingly vowed to fight to the end with his appeal. Well, the end might be coming. According to...
According to Steven Marcus of Newsday, Alex Rodriguez’s appeal hearing will begin on September 30, the day after the regular season ends.

Something that could...

The Red Sox visited Yankee Stadium on Thursday night in their first game since Boston's Ryan Dempster hit Alex Rodriguez with a pitch on Aug. 18. That...
It’s just too easy to pick on Alex Rodriguez sometimes. It’s even easier when he tries to get in on the joke and instead makes himself even more laughable.
The latest incident came Thursday night, when Rodriguez got a hold of a Jake Peavy pitch midway through the Yankees’ 9-8 loss to the Red Sox and carved a double into the right-center gap. When Rodriguez made his turn to...
The last time the Yankees and Red Sox tangled tempers erupted Alex Rodriguez got plunked and then hit a dramatic home run and the Yanks iced one of their best wins of the season.
Now the bitter rivals tangle again in a four-game series beginning Thursday in the Bronx that should have implications in the American League wild-card chase and perhaps the AL East race. What do the teams...

For the Red Sox, that simply means Clay Buchholz is on his way back. The right-hander continues his rehab assignments, and it’s believed he could return as early as next week in Tampa Bay.
There’s no understating how important Buchholz could be, especially if he returns to anything close to what he was before...
Two mediocre pitchers faced off in Rick Porcello and Ryan Dempster in the series finale vesus the Tigers. You know what that means? Home run deby.
If you had tickets in right field, you picked a great night for a lot of action. Not only were there multiple bombs to right field, but Shane Victorino went falling into the stands to make a catch. Nothing Jeter-esque, but still not bad...
With the start of a four game set in Happytown, the Sox have a chance to put a sizable hurtin’ on the Yankees. Every win will beef up the already imposing 8 game lead the Sox currently enjoy. Dare I suggest that a sweep would pretty much eliminate any Yankee post-season aspirations. On the heels of that insane pasting of the Tigers last night, I’ve got to hope the boys have fine...
